Links to our valued donors and sponsors: The Central Community Circle Food Pantry was formed as a not-for-profit charity to fill the void left by the closing of the John Lewis Food Pantry in Central Davenport. With the help of an initial grant from a local foundation and the dedication of Sister Marilyn Schierbrock we opened our doors to the community in 2008. How is the Pantry funded? The Pantry receives no government funding and relies exclusively on private contributions from concerned citizens and businesses. A few local merchants donate food directly to the Pantry, but a majority of our food supplies are purchased from the River Bend Foodbank at greatly discounted rates, using donated funds. How much of your donation will actually benefit those in need? Virtually all of it. We are a 100% volunteer organization with no payroll. Other than the cost of a single cell phone and some basic office supplies, there are no administrative costs. The premises are rent-free, and our appliances, shelving, maintenance and even the hosting of this website are provided free of charge. We will strive to turn every dollar of your tax deductible donation into a meal for someone who is truly in need. How can you help? We have been blessed with steady community support, but our ability to serve those in need is limited by the resoucres available to us - and the need is ever increasing. If you can make a monetary donation please do so. If you know of any local food merchants (including farmers and hunters) who can donate food please ask them to contact us.
